Shuttle service and better directions
The location is a bit far. There is a short cut but it is neither shown in hotel website nor displayed clearly in google map. Anyway even by short cut you have to walk 15minutea. I think the hotel should provide shuttle for this kind of distance. Hotel staff told me the driver was sick. But after booking they never told me there is shuttle service. Is the driver sick for the day or ever since I booked the room - smile!

Brilliant stay and wonderful hotel
We will definitely come again. The hotel is wonderful in many aspects. The view is stunning facing the tranquil Uji river. We highly recommend to private bathroom with a view facing the riverside. The only thing we haven't tried is the dinner there. Hope we can try next time!

Beautiful and convenient
The hotel is located on the river bank of the Uji river, and has really good view of a pagoda and a bridge. And it is really close to the historical sight of Pyodoin and the JR station. Very good services.

Stunning views and room
Simple but so beautiful and comfortable. We chose a room with a private hot spring and felt it was very much worth the extra charge. Unfortunately, we felt some of the staff werent as welcoming as many other places we have stayed in Japan.

Very beautiful view of the river directly at your balcony! And the room is spacious and beautifully furnished in Japanese style. Very nice walk along the river any time, and close to main attractions of Uji. Only thing is restaurant need pre-booking.
